Learning to Walk in the Dark (click to order book) – Linda+ will lead discussion sessions on Barbara Brown Taylor’s exploration of ways to find spirituality in those times when we don’t have all the answers. Taylor asks us to put aside our fears and anxieties and to explore all that God has to teach us “in the dark”; teaching us how to find our footing in times of uncertainty and giving us strength and hope to face all of life’s challenging moments. Zoom invitation here
You can also order the book by phone. Call (401) 331-9097.

Daily Devotional reading: It’s helpful to establish a daily devotional pattern of spending time with God. The following two suggestions might help with this.
Lent with Evelyn Underhill – a selection of Underhill’s enduring devotional writings chosen for their pertinence to Lenten themes. Although it’s 50 years since her death, Evelyn Underhill remains a significant Anglican voice on the interior life of prayer.
Living Lent with Barbara Cawthrone Crafton – for centuries the words and poetry of our hymns have spoken to us of God. Many people, in fact, find that what is heard in poetry and music sinks more deeply into the soul than anything else. Crafton writes: “I hope that you find yourself humming familiar tunes to yourself as you read, and that this condition persists for the rest of the day.”
